The Three-Minute Film Festival was created by the visionary Chris Baty, who had a dream of getting people to spend 30 days embracing the spirit of uncritical invention. Participants have 30 days to write, produce, and edit a 3-minute film. They reap the rewards at the Black Tie Gala and Film Screening where audience members decide the award-winning films. This year is the 5th Annual Three-Minute Film Festival, and the festivities will kick-off with a retrospective of winning films of yore and end with a live performance by Peloton. On view will be new photos by San Francisco artist and last year’s film fest award winner, Daniel Nolan*.

Root Division is an arts and arts education non-profit located in the Mission District of San Francisco. Root Division acts as an ecosystem for artists in that we provide subsidized studio space to working artists in exchange for their service in the organization. While creating opportunities for individuals to develop both creatively & professionally, Root Division promotes creative expression and builds community through having these artists teach art in after school programs, lead adult education classes, and produce special events that showcase local emerging artists. It is in these connections between artistic exploration and public engagement that we spark the powerful synergy between personal inspiration and social change.

Root Division is supported in part by grants from the San Francisco Foundation, the Walter & Elise Haas Sr Fund, and by a charitable gift from the Kanbar Charitable Trust administered by the Jewish Community Endowment Fund. The Second Saturday Exhibition Series is sponsored by the Phyllis C. Wattis Foundation and the Zellerbach Family Foundation.
